Can males have vocal nodules?

So in the last 2 weeks ive started to feel a scrachy quality to my voice when belting G#4 which sounds like a beggining of a vocal nodule but ive heard that its extremely rare to happen to males? Could it be bcoz of the irritated vocal cords? I can sing every note just like i did before, no range drop no nothing, but after i sing i feel irritation through my throat, currently on a voice rest tho

    Vocal nodules are not rare for males and WILL happen if you sing improperly. I can almost guarantee the cause for your pain is that you are using too much air when you are singing. This is always caused by incorrect diaphragmatic support.

    I admit that i was probably using too much air trying to belt but i usually sing very light (i still sing alot and that might have been the base of the problem), do u recommend that i go to an ENT or try resting, i have only spoken 2 words in the past 3 days, and it feels much better but theres still a very slight irritation (kinda what u get when u have a cough) its weird that i feel it in the trachea and not the vocal cords, i dont really understand it

    Hi @Jack12343212,

    as a medical doctor I would recommend you to rest 2 weeks and avoid speaking. Then try again singing, but very lightly, If the problem persist consultate an ENT.
